The Ontario Ministry of Labour is now accepting proposals for its Occupational Health, Safety and Prevention Innovation Program (OHSPIP). This initiative aims to improve the safety and wellbeing of workers by encouraging initiatives that address current health and safety issues. This year’s submissions will focus on one of four identified priorities:
- Workplace Mental Health
- Mobile Equipment Hazards
- Occupational Disease
- Secondary Injury Prevention
The last round of funding through the OHSPIP supported 12 projects and awarded $4.3 million in total grant funding. The deadline to apply for this year’s OHSPIP is April 25, 2017.
